The ultimate remote admin: NASA will reformat Opportunity’s dodgy flash memory from 125 million miles away

It would seem, despite being outfitted with the finest flash memory that money can buy, even Mars rover Opportunity isn’t immune to worn-out NAND cells. After a dozen unplanned reboots in August, most likely caused by the faulty flash, NASA is moving ahead with a complete reformat of the rover’s volatile memory. Back in 2004, Opportunity’s sibling rover — Spirit — was brought back from the brink of death with a similar reformatting maneuver. Considering Opportunity has now been roving the surface of Mars for over a decade, and all it has required is some small software updates and now a format, I’d say the little rover has done rather well.
